that we have an election, toward the middle to the end of the summer when the election kicks off in earnest, they virtually stop doing audits and work almost completely on the public financing program, which is sort of an auditing process in itself. because with public finance candidates, you're not just looking at contributions after the fact, you're also monitoring all the ones that are coming in. so, it's almost like a double audit because, of course, it's public money so we treat it very carefully. and, to be honest, although we have four auditors and they're all excellent people, we can really use five, perhaps even six, you know. some day, really, we ought to be able to audit all committees and not just public finance committees and a handful of others. we just don't have any other resources to do that. >> and in addition to what the what director sinclair said, during the election season, the auditors very closely review notifications from candidates as to which threshold they're at in terms of fund-raising and spending. and they also review third-party spending and track

regardless of who won the election. i don't think -- i'm a massachusetts native myself. i don't think that there was any real danger that government was going to get drastically smaller if mitt romney had been elected president. i know that that's a shocking thing for many people to, you know, grapple with, but i think that it's clearly the record is the case that that was unlikely. but certainly there is no probability that it was going to get at all mauler if president obama was -- smaller if president obama was reelected as he was. and after the president's re-election, i think a lot of conservatives and libertarians were demoralized, particularly people who thought that romney was going to win in some kind of a landslide were worried that obama's re-election meant that the country had changed in some fundamental, irreversible way. they began to doubt after the 2010 elections had looked pretty good for groups like the tea party and for conservative republicans, they began to doubt that big government actually could be stoppedment so that -- stopped. so that's one of the reasons why
